Leducate is an educational charity that aims to promote an understanding of everyday legal rights among secondary school-aged students in England. We provide curriculum resources and training for teachers to deliver lessons directly to students on a range of topics including their civil and consumer rights.
We believe education is a crucial lever of social mobility and, in an increasingly legalised world, it is more important than ever that schools, which make students literate and numerate in conventional subjects, have the provision to make them legally literate too.
We believe that empowering young people with knowledge of their legal rights and responsibilities in everyday situations can change their future. It can divert some away from a path of debt, prison or social-services dependency and give them the tools to be informed, responsible and empowered members of society.
